Rachael Brown, Owner / Operator

Owner / Operator of Proper Puss since 2009. NY & MA License for Aesthetics since 2002 and Certified Laser Technician with an AAS degree in Hotel/Restaurant Management. The hospitality industry is in my blood and I was born a servant! Creating Proper Puss came naturally to me with my skill in working with and attracting people. I set my goal and used my “work horse” attitude in achieving my dream. I feel very blessed to have a profession and work place where I can express my love for life, and internal beauty. The heart and soul of a human is the root and stem in which we are able to express ourselves, outwardly. I have faith in my heart for my purpose here in this life. I’m committed to providing the highest quality service and believe in building trust, through integrity to make Proper Puss a HUGE success.
